White Sheep Temple

Baegyangsa

On a rare, good-weather day I caught a bus heading north from Gwangju to Naejangsan National Park (내장산). Despite being stung by a giant insect, that I’ve never seen before or since, it was one of my most memorable days in Korea.

My random, desktop image of the day happens to be from 7 years ago today, when I hung out in the rain to watch a bit of the 2010 Tokyo Marathon. Today was the 2017 version.

The wheelchair racers (車いすマラソン) lead the pack.

Today’s photo wasn’t taken while driving. Instead, this is from the parking lot for the Fay Canyon Trail.

Neurosis @ 2017 Roskilde Festival

@scottneurosis @OfficialNeurot @neurosisoakland #rf17 @orangefeeling @RedFang @RelapseRecords

The 2017 lineup for the Roskilde Festival is slowly taking shape. So far it is rather light on bands I want to see. But the fact that Neurosis will be there is all I need to show up. Red Fang and High on Fire are two others I’m looking forward to. Hopefully they are all playing on Saturday.
